    Overall great experience. Staff were kind and helpful. Breakfast ($3.50) and dinners ($5) were delicious. Hostel was clean and well kept, rooms as well. Showers were electric and sort of scary (but that is south america for ya).

    We had a wonderful stay at Minka hostal!! Open, clean and cozy, with plenty of common areas to relax. The rooms were clean and fresh, and we especially appreciated the dinner served at the hostel, which was really good and very cheap! One of my favorite hostels in South America:)

    It’s a little bit out of the tourist centre (Plaza Foch) but is near plenty of bus stops that get you there in less than 10 minutes also a taxi only costs $3-5. Hostel is always clean, WiFi is decent, showers are good, beds are comfy. A lot of the staff are volunteers so don’t have the best knowledge of what is going on and how things work around the hostel but we booked trips which were good and when my sister unfortunately got robbed in the city they were super helpful! Would stay here again!
